Scouts say Russia was working to prepare for the deployment of a small number of Armats in Ukraine, but the occupiers were reluctant to accept the first allocated batch of T-14s due to the poor condition of the vehicles.

The British cannot determine which aspects of the tanks caused the invaders to react this way, but for the past three years Russian officials have publicly described problems with the Armata’s engine and thermal imaging systems.

In 2021, the head of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu described the production batch planned for 2022 as “pilot production”.

Therefore, it is unlikely that any deployed T-14 tanks will meet the usual standards for the new equipment to be considered combat-ready, the summary concluded.
